My Royal Enfield Bullet 500 is now exactly seven years old and would you believe it, it’s still running on the stock OEM supplied MRF tyres. The bike has close to 25,000km on the odometer and while the tyre still has life, seven years means it’s become hard and lost most of its important properties.
Switching to a new tyre, I wanted something that could handle both road and no road, because that way I don’t have to think about road conditions when I do head out on a road trip. But dual purpose tyres are a little compromised when it comes to outright cornering grip on good tarmac and that is something that I didn't want to compromise on. Well, according to Apollo I don’t really have to with their all-new ActiGrip R6 range.
